Dec. 7 BMAA meeting: Star hopping with binoculars and show-and-tell.

Please join us for our December 7 BMAA meeting, beginning at 7:30 pm at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church, 411 Susquehanna Road, Ambler, PA 19002. Look for our black and yellow signs.
We are fortunate to have a special presentation by a member who will have give a demonstration on “Star Hopping with Binoculars.”He will have star charts to show his star hopping techniques and will also bring some star charts and atlases that are more useful than electronic versions for serious visual observing. He will also bring various size binoculars and compare them for astronomy use. Bring your own binoculars to compare how they measure up any star charts you might use.
Following the star hopping presentation, we will have “show and tell:”
1. You are welcome to bring your latest “gadget” to special equipment to demonstrate.
2. Favorite astrophotographs  are also welcome (if you bring photos, please provide some background information on techniques and equipment used as well as information about “target.”)
3. Have you taken any interesting, astronomy-related trips lately you would like to describe?
If you wish to show any photos or presentation, please bring a thumb drive containing your files.
